5. In that context, I usually associate "listen" with "acknowledge"

We've all had productive disagreements with people, and plenty more frustrating experiences when you may as well be speaking to a brick wall. It depends on what you expect to get out of the communication, I suppose - that goes for both communicating and listening/reacting.

Listening implies that person is at least trying to understand where you're coming from - or at least that's how it should be. But you're right, too many people communicate (talk and listen) with a "my way or the highway" type of agenda.
